The hotel seems new and has a pleasant feeling to it. It is very hard to find a decent place to eat within an easy walk of the hotel, which was disappointing. The check-in process as smooth. The breakfast was good for a N. American hotel, not good if you are used to European efforts. What really disappointed me was... More

While I am happy you enjoyed your stay for the most part, I will speak to my staff about the alarm clock noise. I am extremely sorry that you had this happen during your stay. I hope you have a fantastic week. More

I really enjoy this place. We stayed last Saturday night (9 July), in a jacuzzi suite and the room was large and comfortable. Does seem like housekeeping must have been very shortstaffed. We paid full rate for that and were not able to check in until nearly 3pm. I'm sure many of the other guests weren't Club Carlson members, paying... More

I stayed at this hotel on Friday night. The staff is friendly. The facilities are well maintained. I usually don't sleep well the first night in a hotel. I slept like a rock and the beds are very comfortable. I would certainly recommend this as the place to stay in Alexandria, MN.

I have stayed here two times the past two weeks. The property is dirty inside and outside and needs to be cleaned. The side door has a layer of dirt and grime and there are nasty smelling cigarette butt receptacles right next to the doors. The hallways smell of stale cigarette smoke and the rooms don't meet what is expected... More

I am very sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay with us. I apologize if the hotel wasn't to your liking. I assure you we are a non smoking hotel now which has not always been the case. The reason why we have the smoking buckets outside of the entrys is because people were tossing the butts on the ground,... More

Aside from the terribly inconvenient construction (which of course doesn't reflect on the hotel) this hotel is perfectly located to get to downtown Alexandria in a few short minutes. We enjoyed the pool (open until midnight!) and how beautiful the room was for just one night. Easy to park two cars out front, and many plugs available in the room,... More

Only stayed for one night, but I travel for a living and I was impressed. Check-in was great, I like hotels which have prepared for your check-in rather than start searching for your name in the computer. As soon as I opened the door I liked the room, fresh and modern, simply really comfortable. The TV has a ton of... More
